“This year we will be celebrating 50 years of Independence and they did their very best and made us proud. All of them should be honoured even though there are some of them who did not get a medal.

A house will be the most important thing needed by 24-year-old Keston Bledman, his father said.
“If my son could get a house, I would be very thankful. That is the most important thing for him. He would usually stay at a hotel or sometimes pass through by me but most of the time he is not really around. I think it is a good investment for a young person. I don’t know what the others might want. Everybody will have different wants and needs and they should be rewarded accordingly.”
